While Harpo Marx usually comes across a tactful and diplomatic (as described on the previous page), he can also be surprisingly blunt and direct, especially when people get to know him better. Perhaps Harpo's gift is to say very honest and candid things in a way that will not alienate people. Alternatively, he may vacillate between being gracious and "telling it like it is".
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Harpo Marx, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Harpo Marx probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Marx can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Harpo Marx has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Marx always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Harpo Marx has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Harpo has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Marx expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Harpo's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Harpo Marx enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Marx.
Ownership gives Harpo Marx a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Harpo also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Harpo Marx is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Harpo Marx, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Harpo Marx becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Harpo.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Harpo Marx confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Marx to claim his own.
He is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Harpo Marx tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than he is. Marx will fight for what he wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
Harpo Marx has a sensitive physique, is impressionable and prone to external influences. Harpo should guard against the tendency to escape through drugs, alcohol etc. His imagination is very vivid and Marx is likely to dream of big things.
